Ride the Chepe express
Take the new luxury rail service through the Copper canyon of Mexico, the Chepe Express.
The glorious Copper Canyon railway runs along one of the world’s great routes, crossing viaducts over deep canyons and carving its way through mountains tunnels. You’ve long been able to travel the route on the Regional Railway but now a new service, the Chepe Express, offers a more comfortable and luxurious experience. We recommend the upgrade: the extra comfort and little touches are worth the cost.
Facilities Onboard the Chepe Express
There are two classes of carriage: business class and first class. All carriages are spacious and with wide padded seats and a tasteful finish. While business class passengers enjoy reclining seats, panoramic windows, good bathrooms and access to the communal bar for drinks and snacks, those travelling first class also have extra space, a terraced/observation car and a complimentary meal in the restaurant car.
Add a journey on the Chepe Express into your Mexico holiday itinerary, and you’ll enjoy an unrivalled tour through the distinctive landscape. You’ll marvel at the awe-inspiring scenery from a spot where you can simply kick back and admire the view.
